It’s the first G4-specific product to ship, and uses the Cube’s modem port to provide board-level compatibility beyond that of other serial-adaptor solutions.
It supports serial devices that worked with previous Macs, including personal digital-assistants, modems, digital cameras, MIDI and lab equipment and serial printers.
The £49 device also supports LocalTalk file sharing and printing. Griffin Technologies products are distributed by Alta Technology (0207 622 6606) in the UK.
Griffin has also posted version 2.51 of the iMate USB to ADB driver. It now supports Alphasmart input devices. The current iMate driver that supports all custom ADB drivers will be supported under the shipping version of OS X.
